Then I discovered the Ebon Vanguard weapon set, and found that (probably through a bug of some kind) the long-bow and short-bow looked identical, or at least always displayed the long-bow even when I swapped to the short. That was fantastic, as not only did it solve the “short-bows look like toys” issue it also created a really cool situation where it appeared as if I simply had twice as many skills on the same weapon, really giving the feeling of being an archery master. I used this weapon set for pretty much the entire leveling process until the move to exotic gear (and the fact I wasn’t about to pay for fine transmutation stones) forced me to drop the short-bow.
Recently I opted to go back to my preferred play style, figuring that the more accessible transmutation system would be to my benefit and that I was replacing all my gear to a new stat-type anyway. You can imagine how saddened I was to find that this “feature” has been patched out, and the Vanguard short-bow now looks like something you’d find at Toys ‘R Us. Needless to say I was not happy, and kind of wanted my karma back…but whatever, better to live in the solution than the problem. [/spoil]
So this brings me to my question (if you actually read the context section, good on you); are there any weapon sets in the game wherein the long-bow and short-bow appear to use the same skin, and be of the same size? Or, failing that, are there any short-bows that don’t look like they were intended to be used by the diminutive protagonist of an animated Disney movie?
